Orange Cream Cheese Pound Cake


As you can tell, I am loving cream cheese pound cake! I adapted this recipe from lemon pound cake. I don't have any orange at home and thus the use of extract. But it would certainly fragrant packed with added orange zest. Not that this is not fragrant, but I like the burst of flavor when I bite into the zest. ;)



Another look of the cake.


Ingredients:


1 8oz cream cheese
3/4 c (1 1/2 sticks) of butter
1 1/2 cups of sugar
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 tsp. orange extract
1/2 tsp. lemon extract

4 eggs
2 cups cake flour or all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder

Method:

1. Preheat oven to 325'F. Beat cream cheese, butter, sugar and extracts until well blended. Add eggs one at a time and beat until combined.

2. Add in flour and baking powder and beat at low speed until incorporated.

3. Pour into a greased and floured 10-inch tube pan and bake for 1 hour to 1 hour 10 mins or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

4. Let cool completely on wire rack.

The cake looks great. I've never tried making a cake with cream cheese before but it sounds (and looks) like it comes out well!

Dear Little Corner of Mine,

I have tried your cake recipes and they have been successful for me. I am sure this one will not be an exception as well.

p/s
Anytime a cake calls for orange, I include a little shreds of orange skin.

Hi Lee Ping,
I would have added some orange zest if I have a orange at home. But don't have one at that time. :(
